This Week's Stories:

Calendar Pick:
Strawberry Festival, South Berwick, Maine
June 25, 2011, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. The Strawberry Festival
is a yearly event filled with entertainment, food,
artisans and strawberry shortcakes!  The festival
grows every year yet manages to keep its small
town country flavor.

Feature: The Captain Lindsey House -- an Inn for All Seasons
Just steps off of Main Street in Rockland, Maine, proudly sits a true gem, The
Captain Lindsey House on Lindsey Street. The Captain Lindsey House is very
special. Built in 1832 by Captain George Lindsey, the present inn has been
lovingly restored by the current owners, Ken and Ellen Barnes.

Garden: Wildflowers Beyond the Ordinary: New England Wildflowers
Every wildflower has a tale to tell. Think of the curious construction of the
Jack-in-the-pulpit, which carpets moist woodlands in early spring, or a hillside
ablaze in summer with the vibrant orange of the devil’s paintbrush. These are just
two of the distinctive wildflowers we associate with living in New England.
Recently a relative in Maine introduced me to three native New England
wildflowers that, while just as common as the Jack-in-the-pulpit and devil’s
paintbrush, have extravagant looks and colorful histories that go beyond just form
and color.

Food: Ice Cream is Always Hot! Ice Cream Parlours in Northern New England
Good old fashioned "hard" ice cream is "hard" to find these days. As I travel
around New England I’ve noticed that soft serve is becoming more and more
popular. But homemade taste can only be found in the traditional hard ice cream
that you find at so many of the ice cream shops around New England.
